Disney Springs Concept Art Revealed!

Two New Renderings Give an Update on Disney Springs

The construction continues at Downtown Disney. The area is still open during the transformation to Disney Springs. Recent changes include the addition of two Starbucks, new kiosks for both Haagen-Dazs ice cream and Wetzel’s Pretzels, and Marketplace Co-op.

Two new renderings have been released by Disney Parks Blog, which will give you a glimpse of what the traffic and parking situation will be like. Traffic is always a concern in the area, so Lake Buena Vista Drive will be widened from seven lanes to ten lanes, to help ease some of the congestion. The drawings also show one of two multilevel parking garages that are planned for Disney Springs. The garage that is pictured will have 4000 spaces, and it is expected to be operational in late 2014.

The plan includes two pedestrian bridges, one in Marketplace and the other in West Side. The renderings also show a new I-4 interchange, so that it will be possible to exit the Interstate and proceed directly to Disney Springs.

The first new section of Disney Springs, called The Landing, is expected to open in 2015. The project is slated to be finished in 2016.

About PaulaK

I grew up in Western Massachusetts. When I was nine my family went to Disneyland and I was hooked. I grew up, attended New England College in Henniker, NH and eventually moved to Virginia. I worked as a disc jockey, married and became a full time mom when our daughter was born. Fast forward several years. In 2010 we moved to Central Florida and my Disney obsession grew. I now work as a freelance writer and spend my spare time in the parks. Under the name Paula Brown I penned the novels Dream Wanderers and The Coffee Cruiser. I also am a co-author of Dining at Walt Disney World: The Definitive Guide. I'm obsessed with Star Wars, so this is a good time to live in Central Florida. I've been a vegetarian for well over a decade, a choice that my daughter eventually made as well. While my husband still hasn't joined us fully he has given up most meats except for seafood. I was relieved to find that vegetarian dining is not difficult at Walt Disney World.
